Christmas is my favorite, if I have not mentioned it enough. That being said I have more decorations for Christmas than any other. By majority the decorations are Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
My husband Ashlin bought this for me before the move and I love it! As I have grown nothing has dulled the happiness this brings me and nothing ever will!
This is the first year that I was able to display my village. My Grandma Boyle always had her nativity out and I still remember where she put it in her house in Sebastopol. If I close my eyes I can even see it clearly in my memory. I wonder where she puts it in her new house? Hmm food for thought.
This year I get to follow her tradition but in my own special way. I have the Rudolph village that my parents gave me for my birthday/Christmas combo gift a few years ago. I was going to put if on my coffee bar but I did not have enough room so I had to rethink things. I decided to put in the spare/craft room. I have my great grandma’s table with has two folding wings and a leaf. I inserted the leaf and put my village on the table. With the leaf in place I still have room to flip-up one of the sides and do some crafting. Plus I still get to have my village out.
I will have to think of another way to display it next year so I can have it out in the living room but I have all year to think about that =)
What does your house look like all decorated? Do you have a favorite theme for your decorations?
